Mari, Puppies and The Shelter Pet Project

After watching that heart-wrenching video of the mother dog and her 3 pups from my previous post, Mom decided she would go searching for the movie to see what happened next. It was a happy ending after all! (Go here to read about the movie)

Mom also managed to
*cough*download*cough* the movie, and so we'll be watching it tonight! YAYY! (psst...if any of you want to do the same, please do let us know and we'll pass the links on *wink* I know it's not very good to do this, but it's impossible to find that movie here, so we had to resort to uhh...not-so-good methods to watch it)

The other day, Mom got a very cool email from a nice lady about a new campaign running in the aim of increasing the rate of shelter pet adoption in the US. They do this by dispelling myths about these lovable animals. This campaign is called the Shelter Pet Project (SPP) and is sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, Maddie's Fund, and the Ad Council! Check out the very cute and PAWSOME ad here:

Besides that, they have a very cool website too to tell us more about the campaign, how we can get involved, as well as the shelter doggies & kitties who are looking for a furever home! Here are some screenshots of what the website looks like:

The main page...with a cute animation of adorable doggies!

The Adopt-A-Gram page, where you can send messages to friends or family and spread the word about this pawsome project! Who knows, they might just be looking for a new member to their home...*wink*

And Pet Personals...where you can fill in a questionnaire to match a needy dog or cat your own home and lifestyle! How cool is that? *grins*

So, if you are looking for a pet, or you know of someone who is looking for a pet, how about giving shelter doggies or kitties a chance? They so deserve to have loving homes like yours and mine! Although I am not from a shelter, I am so blessed to be able to find my home...some other doggies or kitties were not so lucky, so if we could, let's all give them a second chance at finding a loving home!

Mummy has a few friends who help out in shelters. Most of these dogs were ex-breeding dogs which the volunteers rescued from the farm. Some of them comes in very bad condition. But under the care of the volunteers, they bloom into beautiful dogs. Hope all dogs in the shelter can find a place to call home :)

A very good post, Scottie. We hate it that so many animals end up killed at shelters.
